    I'm sorry but I disagree with your last sentence. When I see an experienced rider, like yourself, riding on a MUP, I expect him/her to a relatively straight line, rather or not the rider behind you...

    People need to get over themselves and stop judging other people for doing their own thing. If you're not comfortable wearing bibs and jersey on your rides, fine, don't wear them. There's no law...

    It depends on the temperature for me. During the cooler weather, I only needed 48 oz of fluids for a 50-65 mile ride. Now, in the hotter weather, I drank the same 48 oz for a 30-40 mile ride.

    If riding in the wind makes you more tired, take more breaks or longer breaks each time. There is no shame in taking more breaks. If your goal for the day is 20 miles, for example, do what you need...

    You know what's funny. That's my motivation of riding. You ride 20-30 miles out. You're tired. However, you can't just quit because you have no ride home haha. Only way home...ride your tired...
